'Cheer' Cast Reacts to Daytona 2020 Being Canceled Because of Coronavirus

The cast of Netflix’s Cheer – the team from Navarro College – won’t be able to defend their title at the NCA and NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance National Championship.

Varsity Spirit announced that the competition, as well as many others, have been cancelled due to coronavirus concerns.

“Following recommendations of the CDC, we are not proceeding as planned with scheduled events for the next eight weeks. We are actively exploring all options, including rescheduling events, extending the competition season, and hosting virtual competitions,” the company shared with fans and athletes.

La’Darius Marshall took to Instagram to share that he and the team were heartbroken over the decision, but understood why.

“Daytona you will be missed and greatly appreciated. I love everyone one of my teammates and all the love we shared. The end of my cheerleading career has come a bit early,” he wrote. “For everyone who supported me all this way I want to say thank you and I love you. I’m heartbroken for my team and coaches. Long live the bright light we all shared together and the countless fullouts we have done to get ready for this competition. I never got to say goodbye to my brothers and sisters but I know we all love each other dearly. To the rest of the world I love you guys and thank you for being our #1supporters.”

Lexi Brumback, Gabi Butler, and Shannon Woolsey also shared their thoughts about the cancellations. Check out their tweets below!
